Normally, your home is your sanctuary, the place you come to relax and unwind. But you’ve been stuck in your house for what seems like years, and all of those little things that you used to be able to ignore keep popping up all around you… But don’t despair – this is a great time to start brainstorming and then take action towards all of those improvements you’ve been meaning to start!
Do you need more space in the kitchen, now that the whole family can help with the cooking? Is the carpet looking a little worn in the family room? How about that basement you keep meaning to turn from a storage area into useable space (don’t we ALL realize we need more usable space right now)?
Now is the perfect time to really figure out your family’s style and then get started on your renovations. There is a plethora of resources online to browse colors, materials, and options for any room in your house (like here and here), so you can make lots of decisions right now from the comfort of your couch. There’s no need to go to a showroom! Take a look at home décor websites and online style magazines for inspiration and start bookmarking links or printing out pictures of things you like so you can create a style board. This will be very helpful when you talk with one of our professionals to start your project.
After you have your list of renovations, and you have narrowed down your interior design style, you need to prioritize. Think about which projects would make the most positive impact for your family, and what kinds of adjustments you will need to make while the project is ongoing. Some people like to tackle the biggest projects first while some like to chip away at the list, making small but significant improvements. It depends on your family, your needs, and your budget, and there is not one right answer. What’s important to remember is that any improvement will create value, both for your family and your home.
